The issues on bilateral cooperation were discussed at the meeting.
“On behalf of the Asian Development Bank I congratulated President Nursultan Nazarbayev on the country's successes after the crisis period and on the economic growth against the background of unfavorable financial situation in the world. I reported to the President on the work being carried out by the Asian Development Bank on joint cooperation with Kazakhstan. This year we plan to allocate over USD 1 billion to finance a number of projects in the field of road construction and small and medium businesses support. We are convinced that cooperation with Kazakhstan will be successful,” Xiaoyu Zhao highlighted.
